CSS Corp to increase workforce and create talent pool in India

CSS Corp, a global provider of customer experience and technology services, is looking to hire some 3,000 employees this fiscal year, about 60% of which will be for its India footprint.

A majority of hiring should focus on engineers. The company is also looking to hire non-engineering graduates (B.Com, B.Sc).

“We have refined our focus on campus and lateral hiring. We’ve doubled our workforce in 2.5 years and we’re looking to double it again in three years,” Sunil Mittal, CEO of CSS Corp, told ET.

Last month, the company launched the CSS Corp C2C (Campus to Career) program, which aims to interact with college students/engineers through paid internships. The San Jose, Calif.-based company has also invested in cloud labs for students to get hands-on training on different programs and products.

“We are also focused on building a talent pipeline and gaining market share in many verticals, cybersecurity being one of them. We are investing heavily in a model of hiring smart people and passion and put them through structured programs and train them for 4-6 months, giving them the skills that customers are looking for,” said Mittal.

The company is also raising the bar in its diversity and inclusion efforts. It has launched an initiative to hire 100 former armed forces personnel in India and the United States, and seeks to increase its current ratio of 36% of women across the company to 50% over the next few years. next two years, Mittal said. To this end, it deploys policies for stay-at-home moms and moms who want to re-enter the workforce.

“We launched a workforce planning model with the goal of providing them with flexible working hours, especially for stay-at-home moms and moms looking to re-enter,” Mittal said. The company also targets women-only colleges as part of its campus recruiting programs.
